Andrew Johns apologises after drunken Toowoomba encounter
UPDATE: Football legend Andrew Johns has apologised to Pittsworth woman Helen Wright over his drunken antics, News Corp has reported.
The rugby league immortal allegedly made sexually explicit comments to the married mother of three before passing out at Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport last night.
Mrs Wright labelled his behaviour at the airport on Friday night as "disgusting, disgraceful" in a Facebook post to Channel Nine's Today Show.
Johns has been in touch with Mrs Wright and directly apologised.
"I've obviously said the wrong thing which has offended her and I rang her and apologised for that and she accepted my apology," he reportedly said.
While the Facebook post alleged he was "severely intoxicated", Johns denies passing out.
"I was up there for a function and had been up since 5 am. My flight home was delayed three hours last night so I took myself away into a quiet corner and laid down and had a sleep. No way did I pass out."
The original post also alleged he attempted to kiss Mrs Wright.
"I am a 42-year-old woman that he asked to kiss him,"
"When I refused to kiss him and replied I was happily married and had three sons his question to me was 'did you have a caesarean birth?(sic)'.
Should Johns be sacked over his antics?

No, give him a break

Mrs Wright wrote that "many people were not impressed with his behaviour".
"Many of the children had taken photos of him passed out
"My own sons have played football all their lives and we love the game. But not this aspect of the game. Regards."
EARLIER: RUGBY league immortal Andrew Johns 'crash landed' at Wellcamp Airport last night on his way to Sydney for the grand final weekend.
Johns was in Toowoomba to speak at a Spotted Cow event when his flight was delayed due to mechanical issues.
He'd obviously had a big day with a photograph posted on Facebook this morning showing the Channel Nine commentator sleeping on the airport floor.
The photo, shared more than 1100 times, was accompanied by a less than flattering commentary of Johns' behaviour.
But not everyone had a problem with his antics.
"Who cares! He's a human being not a robot. If he wasn't at work, he's allowed to do whatever he wants," one of his supporters said on Facebook.
The Chronicle has contacted Channel 9 for comment.
